  1. Methi theplas are a family favorite in our household and no trip, outing, picnic is complete unless we take some of these with us. I love your recipe nad could easily eat a couple with some pickle.

  2. Yesterday I made this tepla. I have plenty of methi leaves in my garden. So it’s was flavorful and delicious. Your recipe is almost similar to mine 🙂 Yum!

  3. Theplas are a must do on my weekly menu. I mix a variety of flours and make theplas to avoid boredom. With fresh methi vanishing (courtesy summers), I will miss the fresh variety. Theplas with a cup of tea make a wonderful combo right? I dont need any accompaniments with this actually if tea is available. Great share.

  4. This is one of our favorites. My lil one does not like fenugreek in any other preparation other than this one! We also love to have this with our evening coffee / tea.

  5. nom nom nom. methi thepla is one of flatbread which is full of of nutrition and easy to make. My son loves it.
